The Trump Effect now needs a large book to list all of the changes caused by Trump’s illegitimate presidency. Hate Crimes, unprecedented protests, and a national division of our nation’s people not experienced since the Civil War are several results of the Trump Effect.
One of the most interesting and important effects is how hypocritical Republicans are facing anger and demands from their constituents, even in ‘red states.’ Republican politicians have assumed for far too long that they can win elections simply because they have an “R” next to their name on the ballot. They are learning the fearful truth. The actions taken by their illegitimate president, and his choices for his circle of sinners, have inspired thousands of true Americans to stand up to Republicans who have ‘rubber-stamped’ Trump’s unconstitutional actions.
Mitch McConnell, Jason Chaffetz, Joni Ernst, Chuck Grassley, and others have been forced to answer to angry crowds. Personally, the most recent report of a traitorous Senator facing the truth, offers me faith in the American Voter.
Tom Cotton was elected as the junior Senator from Arkansas in 2014. Koch brothers’ money bought him his seat in Washington. Cotton immediately began to rail against every effort proposed by President Obama. He failed to offer a single positive proposal of his own. What he did do was to commit an act of sedition.
When President Obama’s Administration was negotiating a nuclear arms agreement with Iran, Cotton wrote a letter to the leaders of that nation threatening them with repercussions if the agreement was signed. A total of 37 Republicans signed the letter in agreement.
Cotton held a town hall meeting on Wednesday in his home state of Arkansas. He was greeted by a capacity crowd who demanded that he vote against the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, that he vote against the building of Trump’s costly wall, and vote in favor of funding PBS. There were angry boos, and chants demanding that Cotton “Do Your Job,” and “Tax Return.” The overall environment was the rejection of our illegitimate president’s actions as an autocrat.
A nation is not composed of land and government buildings. America is its people. If a leader fails to act according to the will of the people, they must be deposed.
“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their revolutionary right to overthrow it.” Abraham Lincoln
Not only must all true Americans support the revolution, we must become active. There are only 544 men and women who have power in Washington; we are 320,000,000 strong. We can take back our country.
This begins in November of 2018 when all 435 members of congress are up for reelection and one-third of the Senate. We must elect younger, more diverse men and women who believe in the Constitution and hold a positive view of our nation’s future.
Just say “no” to Republicans.
